This Is News?????

Hmmmm... maybe I am happy not to have a TV at the moment. Here's a precious bit from the Fox News program Your World w/Neil Cavuto, brought to you by NewsHounds:

Fox News advertises its "premiere business news" program, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, as offering "news and insight on Wall Street and other market activities, while wrapping up the business news of the day." It says it brings "the most influential players in the business world to our viewers, offering insights on the day's news and the market's broader trends." It's "Business news that matters..."

After the Pilgrim's Pride segment (and after the fear was properly stoked), Fox ran a clip of Randy Travis saying: "Things like this happen because people have turned so far away from what the Bible has taught us to do as a nation."

(Comment: Since when does the Bible mention the United States, much less tell it what "to do as a nation"?)

Cavuto proceeded to introduce his three roundtable guests with: "Remember when Randy Travis was here, he was saying, look, maybe this is God acting here, with all these disasters, so a question we thought was timely: Could all these natural disasters be a message from God? That is again what Randy Travis was saying on this show just a couple weeks ago. Add'em up -- new worries about a bird flu pandemic, mudslides, and all these earthquakes, a hurricane season that just doesn't seem to quit. So, what's going on in this world and is it a message from above?"
